Facebook’s New ‘Click-Gap’ Is Anti-Free Speech

If you are wondering what a click-gap is, then join the crowd. Facebook invented the term, so we are all trying to catch up. Put simply, Facebook is trying to demote domains in its news feed that are getting disproportionately more clicks from inside Facebook than outside of it.

For example, if a website gets a large portion of its pageview traffic from Facebook, but get a small amount from outside of Facebook, then the click-gap signal will now cause Facebook to penalize that website.

Lara Logan tells riveting untold story: My Benghazi report was buried to protect the Obama admin and Hillary

In 2013, then-CBS reporter Lara Logan had an investigative report on the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that was buried and “discredited,” reportedly due to the network’s mistaken vetting of one eyewitness’s account of the incident.

However, according to Logan, the report was disparaged because it was critical of the Obama administration’s failure to come to the defense of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his compound when it was attacked by Islamist terrorists.

Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012.

Western civilization on suicide watch

In large part for demographic reasons, I am pessimistic about the future for America and the West.

My mother died recently, just shy of 94 years old. She left seven grandchildren: two medical doctors, one doctor of physical therapy; and biomedical engineer; one specialist in digital photography; one management trainee and one student. I am older (70) than her husband, my father, was when he passed. I have one grandchild and am unlikely to have more. The night my eldest (now a cardiologist) was married, he called me aside at the reception say his wife did not want to have children. Maybe one, maybe someday.

Begum’s case is not about human rights, it’s about protecting us from jihad

FIVE years ago, a boy named Zane Gbangbola died during the Surrey floods.

Zane was only seven years old when he succumbed to what his parents suspect was cyanide gas caused by the floodwaters to leak from a former landfill site. Kye Gbangbola and Nicole Lawler’s request for legal aid to represent their case at Zane’s inquest was turned down by the Legal Aid Agency who said this did not constitute ‘the public interest’.

Yet civil servants at the Legal Aid Agency have seen fit to grant Shamima Begum legal aid – funded by the British taxpayer – to appeal against Sajid Javid’s decision to strip her of her citizenship. As Melanie Phillips correctly says, Begum has the right to apply for legal aid.

But why was she was given it when more deserving cases are not? Legal aid is means tested. How is it in ‘the public interest’ to risk letting this jihadist back into the UK?

For the first time, “No Religion” is the most popular choice for Americans

Tying Catholicsm and evangelicalism,

“‘Religious nones’ as they are called by researchers, are a diverse group made up of atheists, agnostics, the spiritual, and those who are no specific organized religion in particular. A rejection of organized religion is the common thread they share,” CNN reports.

“It is the first time we have seen this. The same questions have been asked for 44 years,” political scientist and Baptist pastor Ryan Burge told CNN. Timothy Meads, “ICYMI: ‘No Religion’ Now As Popular As Catholicism, Evangelicalism” at Townhall

While there is certainly a decline in organized religion in the Western world, in North America the near-collapse of mainline Protestantism is the main driver of the current numbers.

Put another way, people who, forty years ago, would have cited the church their parents once attended as their “religion” now say “no religion” because they no longer experience social penalties for being honest. It’s still a decline but to discuss it intelligently, we need to see clearly what the decline is.

Raging Woke go after Democrat cartoonist with pro-life views

Just as if they were Justin Trudeau and the Summer Jobs program or something. As Libby Emmons tells it at The Federalist,

Pyle is the creator of the cartoon Strange Planet, and his Instagram has nearly 2 million followers. The cartoons feature cute little aliens finding futility in the basics of human life, but it took this Nylon article bashing his personal ethos about the sanctity of life for me to hear about the guy and follow his account, giving him approximately 2 million viewers and one.

“When looking at Pyle’s personal Instagram, though,” writes Casey Miller for Nylon, “it’s clear that we shouldn’t have been surprised that he has such conservative views. The first line in his bio is ‘I follow Jesus,’ which should clue you in about his religious leanings.” That Jesus is always steering people wrong, I guess. Sanctity of life, promotion of love and kindness, a vow of poverty, dedication to the downtrodden, tending to the needy—I mean, where will it end? More.

Reality check: Sadly, Pyle hopes to be safe anyway by bleating that his wife and he always vote Democrat. Their only safety would lie in obliterating the current Democrats as a political force. Maybe the next lot will not be so beholden to the raging Woke.

‘Eco-colonialists’ blocking jobs and prosperity on First Nations, businessman says

Businessman Calvin Helin wants to bring jobs to his impoverished hometown on the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation on the northwest British Columbia coast, but there’s a powerful group blocking his dreams.

Helin sees a new kind of colonialism — this time imposed by wealthy, big city environmentalists and their allies in the Trudeau government — thwarting the desire for work and for dignity for his old community.

Eco-colonialism, Helin calls it, led by “elitist, latte-slurping white people.”
